    Re: BorderX launching at 4x4 Outdoor Show

    It's not really relevant where I go, is it?
    Look at the length of that caravan: it's longer than the Prado itself. Twisty turns, even on tarred passes will make for interesting driving.

    Re: BorderX launching at 4x4 Outdoor Show

    I think so too. They use a Prado V6, which can tow a load quite well. Unfortunately I couldn't find any specifications as to measurements and weight, but the twin axle sort of gives it away, that...

    I wonder where one can go with that where a gravel roader couldn't go? Serious off road towing doesn't really seem to be possible, with that length.

  7. Re: Amarok On GY Wrangler Adventure - Ride Quality concerns

    Play around with the tyre pressures. Deflate them by 0.2 bar and see whether it makes a difference. Feel the tyres after you have been driving highway for a while. If they are warm to the touch, it's...
